Obviously a lot of the parents that read The Rock Father™ are into rock, and that's cool - it is in the name and all. But, those of you that read closely, or have followed my adventures over the years, know that I'm a big supporter of a balanced musical diet, which brings me to this giveaway. One lucky reader is going to score an autographed copy of EVOLUTION, the new album from German electronic artist PAUL VAN DYK. Another reader is going to snag a standard copy of the album on compact disc. Not familiar with Paul? Check out some video from his album launch in Berlin:

It's been awhile since I've done a proper 'for grown-ups' giveaway here on The Rock Father™, but tonight that ends. You're gonna want to 'Run to the Hills' for this one, as one lucky reader is going to score the new IRON MAIDEN EN VIVO! 2DVD set, and a copy of the film's soundtrack on CD!

So you think that kid's music can't rock? Well you're wrong, and here's another example of why...

Get ready for FUN FUN RECORDS, a new label from Asian Man's MIKE PARK (check out my review of his SMILE album from last fall) that's launching armed with family friendly tunes from members of the BOUNCING SOULS. THE AGGROLITES, the GROOVIE GHOULIES and more. How about a FREE Sampler?

Now this is what I call a crossover. While it's technically something that would be posted under 'Music for Kids,' when an album is called GROOVIN' IN THE GARDEN, it's seems fitting to tell you about it here on The Rock Father™ Gardening Blog. Released last December, this album from New York-based STORY LAURIE & Friends features 16-songs that are perfect listening for those sunny afternoons spent working with your plants. To give you a taste, Laurie is giving away five free songs for the low price of an email.
